Ozogoche (2023) IDFA 2023

Stunningly beautiful portrait of the people around lake Ozogoche as they wait for the return of the Cuvivíe, who every year return and commit suicide by diving into the lake. As one girl waits she plans her escape to the US, fed my the tales of her family already there.

This is a film you'll want to see on the big screen. It's a film with a a very real sense of place. It's a film that is of the Frederick Wiseman school of observational documentary so a big screen will make you really make you feel you are there. 

While the pacing maybe for some, for those who can click into it's speed of life, the film is recommended
